"I think the comparative advantage of the book is that it purposefully engages non-scholarly texts. It is looking for that 'real-world' aspect to comparative politics."
--Harold Orndorff III, Daytona State College
"The three major advantages of Current Debates in Comparative Politics, Second Edition, are the text's readability, the succinct chapters, and, by and large, the very good breadth in terms of coverage."
--George K. Kieh, University of West Georgia
"I like the 'current' part of the book, as the articles are mostly new, and of the older articles, they are mostly popular. The book provides a good stepping stone for debate and discussion in my courses, after my students work through the tougher readings in the field. In short, I'd describe it as an informative and fun comparative current events text, ripe for debate."
--Joshua Dix, University of Georgia
"This is a solid comparative politics companion reader. It covers some topics, like ethnic conflict, much better than many other texts out there and many of the institutional discussions are much more developed than in similar readers."
--Susan K. Glover, American University
